junkie

March 30, 2012

you are like a drug
that i mainlined
into my system;
body
ravaged by
the effects of withdrawal:
teeth clenching 
muscles gripping 
skin trembling 
fingernails digging into
anything that duplicates
the feel of you
pulsing
through me.

famished,
desperate for
another drop of your serum
assaulting my lips
licking my veins
slipping into my body
hijacking my senses.

without my fix
i am forever doomed
to be a junkie, clawing
through the shadows,
grasping deliriously
on hands and knees
through piles of
decaying possibilities
for the vile to numb
the incessant torture
of the ghost of you
haunting my blood.
